My business approach is to make my services personalised and simple.
I love to sew, it’s my passion. It wasn’t a natural career path though, as I spent many of my teenage years stapling together my textile homework. However once I got to college my creativity was unleashed. After I finished my studies I started work at a soft furnishings company, where I was taught all of the old school techniques from start to finish.
It was a fantastic experience but at that point in my life it wasn’t enough. I was young and I wanted to travel so I moved completely away from my natural skill set to an area of business that I knew nothing of, other than I wanted to travel. It was a job that would let me travel and travel I did.
Those days are behind me now and I have left the travel working world. My life has changed all for the better, but the sewing bug was still there. A little voice at the back of my head was telling me that it was time to go back, one stitch at a time.
So here I am beginning a new chapter as a sole trader and following my dream.
A beautiful set of curtains or blinds can turn the most ordinary of rooms into something altogether more special. I love working with my customers to turn their ideas and inspirations into reality.
We have had curtains made for our boat and they look stunning! We were having difficulty finding the colour to match, but with a very patient and helpful Helena we finally got there! We were kept informed of the progress, and they were delivered on time. For anyone looking for a high a high quality perfect fit, I would highly recommend curtains by Helena.
Well this was a journey not sure I expected quite where we’d go from day 1 of meeting Helena but we have exceeded our expectations! Curtains by Helena helped me complete the finishing touches to two of our most decorative rooms. One was with fine silk from our honeymoon and the second we built from scratch together. We negotiated with husbands, we revisited project 1 during project 2 and it all came together beautifully. Thank you for your patience, your attention to detail and hard work! Fabulous results
Helena altered my curtains from pencil pleat to eyelet heading. I was delighted with her work, which was delivered on time.The service provided was first class and included practical advice and 2 home visits. I would have no hesitation in recommending Helena Curtains.
Service like no other, Helena guided me through the design and selection process making everything simple, easy and exciting, I could not of done this on my own. On installation day I simply sat back whilst Helena and her husband Stuart went through turning our house into our dream home. I absolutely love the end result all my rooms not only look beautiful, they all function with my busy family home in mind. This whole experience has meant everything to me, showing me that I didn't have to sacrifice anything to have something practical and beautiful in my home. Thank you Helena I would recommend your services to all and would order again.
My new curtains look absolutely fabulous on the new luxurious curtain rail. They are so well made I now want to do the whole house. I also had new blinds, venetian and verticals, which were expertly installed and look really modern. Am really just overjoyed with the whole experience. Highly recommended.
